    Looking for a new a printer

    I currently have a Cannon MG4120 and I've had this printer for years now. This printer has been giving me problems for a little bit now (almost a month or better) with feeding paper. I have to literally push the paper by hand in order for it to take the paper. I'm now looking for a new wireless printer for home that I can connect to my network. The main functions I want is to be able to copy and scan. I have been looking at Cannon printers but the printers I have been looking at seem to take 5 or 6 ink cartridges instead of two cartridges (Black & Color). I am looking for a printer that has two ink cartridges.

    If anybody has any suggestions on a printer I'll look at them. Price doesn't bother me or brand.

    What will you be printing on this printer? If you are printing a significant amount of photos, that might affect your decision. For general printing, I would not even consider an inkjet. The ink cartridge prices are ridiculous. I have a Brother MFC-9340CDW. Brother drivers are excellent. I have it networked so all computers can use it at any time.

    A Brother MFC unit is the way to go for general printing, at least in my opinion.

    I have this one because I only printer documents, no color needed:

    Brother MFC-L2710DW series Printer

    It's a laser printer and it's networked WiFi so all devices I have can print from it. And laser toner is cheaper than inkjet ink.

    My first printer lasted 19 years, through Win 95, 98 and XP, although I did a few repairs myself. I expect my new one to conk out a lot sooner, and it's all electronic, so I can't repair anything.
